Another mass shooting in Colorado. Will this madness ever end? Or will things just get worse as the stress of life increases with more people pushed out of work or into the gig economy?
It’s now been two years since the first post on CatWorld.blog. The cats thank you for reading, and they hope you enjoy the third year of their wise advice and profound opinions. This is also the 300th post of Cat World. A double celebration.
It seems that some people get a very low-quality image in the Cat World email, where the text is almost unreadable.
The image on the web site is high resolution. If you click the blue title above the image in the email, you will go to the website where you can see the Cat World image in all its glory.
Apparently WordPress sometimes compresses the image it sends out to meet some unknown parameters. I hadn’t noticed the image degradation in the email as I use Yahoo Mail which seems to maintain most of the image quality.
Some people who use Gmail, on the other hand, appear to get horrible image quality. All this suggests that either WordPress compresses the image differently based on the destination email system, or that the destination email system also does its own image compression. Or something else. If anyone has any knowledge of what actually happens I’d love to hear back.
In the meantime, if you can’t easily read the text in the Cat World email, click on the blue title above the image and you will be taken to CatWorld.blog where the text is readable 🙂
And the story continues in all its depressing predictability.
Mary Oliver has just died so I thought I would re-post a cartoon from last August that used a lot of her wonderful lines. As a sort of tribute or memorial.
On the advice of people far wiser than I, Cat World will now also appear on Instagram. The Instagram name is catworldcomic as catworld was taken long ago. I’ll be posting both on this blog and on Instagram. Over time I’ll also migrate older Cat World posts to Instagram. Whichever medium you view, I hope you continue to enjoy Cat World as much as I enjoy creating it.
The world is changing fast, and our politics, culture, and communities are not able to keep up. One way to see what the future might hold is to read science fiction.
It’s okay for people to take drugs to perform better – except in sports.
